RHEL6 can't mount usb (enumberate sdx) number

Hey guys,

I can't seem to mount a external usb drive to system.

I'm waiting to see something in the line of mount usb to sdd but It never gets to that point. I'm seeing the text below.


usb 1-1: USB disconnect, device number 6
usb 1-1: new high speed USB device number 7 using ehci_hcd
usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1058, idProduct=0748
usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=5
usb 1-1: Product: My Passport 0748
usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Western Digital
usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 57583xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

have you tried fdisk -l to see if it appears there at all?

it must show in either parted or fdisk then you can use block device to mount on specific mount point

do you have another system (either linux or windows) that you can attach to?

would be interested to see if it creates a device on another linux system or if it appears in disk management in windows.  if it is already ext formatted windows won't recognize the partitions but it will still appear in disk management without drive letters.

if it doesn't show there either i would assume the drive is bad

it shows up just fine in another linux systems which also has more packages installed on it. Would i need any specific packages?

Does your USB supply enough electrical power? Desktops do laptops almost never...

Seth SimmonsSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
shouldn't need any additional packages unless it has a file system that isn't natively installed like ntfs - though that shouldn't prevent the device from being detected

is there anything after those usb device connect entries?

I was able to figure it out. It was blocked in modprobe.conf.

Thanks
